If you've played Doodle Jump
on iOS, Windows, or Android devices, you know how addictive the game can be. Joining other popular, casual games like Fruit Ninja
, Doodle Jump
will be heading to XBLA
. It's been nearly a year since the move to Xbox was announced, so it's forgivable if you forgot about it, but some new details have been revealed that are worth noting for fans.
Firstly, those Kinect controls the game uses are actually required, so don't go spending your MSP without the peripheral. Hopping side to side and using your arms to defeat enemies will make up the bulk of the motion controls in what sounds like a decent workout for a non-fitness game.
Secondly, the game's level design has been redesigned for XBLA. Whereas on handheld devices, the game would seamlessly and randomly generate more and more of the level as you climbed the platforms (and the leaderboards), the Xbox LIVE Arcade version will have a legitimate beginning and end to each level. Also new to this version will be more obstacles, enemies, and backgrounds to the game.Doodle Jump
is due out sometime this year, but no price or more specific release date has been announced.
